Permasense has installed its corrosion and erosion monitoring system in the North Sea for the first time.
The company, which opened an Aberdeen office last year, hooked up the ET210 integrity monitoring system on Total’s Alwyn platform.
The system on Alwyn is made up of a dozen sensors which deliver wall thickness and temperature measurements from topside and surface equipment.
Tom Fuggle, business development director at Permasense, which is headquartered in Sussex, said: “There is a strong market for solutions that allow oil and gas companies to reduce OPEX and increase production. Understanding equipment integrity is paramount to operational performance and safety.
“ET210 is a cost-effective solution that enables users to minimise OPEX for equipment inspection and at the same time deliver real-time actionable insights into corrosion and erosion events, maximising returns in a safe and controlled way.”
